In recent years, I have intentionally spent more time reading, and some of my favorite topics include leadership, creativity, and team building. I’ll be honest, much of my “reading” occurs through audio books, but I still try to spend time reading physical books. In his article “The Reading Habits of Highly Successful People,” Andrew Merle shares statistics about how many books successful people read each week, month, and year. I am amazed by the hours so many leaders devote to reading.
I recently read “The 19 New Leadership Books to Read in 2019” by Adam Grant. I am looking forward to reading several of these books this year.
This article about Jim Kwik provides us with some strategies to increase how fast we read.
As I reflect on the new year, I hope to spend more time reading and less idle time looking at my phone. I am going to try to have a book available to read or listen to when I have down time.
I am always looking for book suggestions and hope to hear from you. Happy new year!
